How It Works
Frankincense contains several different bioactive compounds that help to cause true benefit for your mind and mood.
In frankincense, the phytochemical compounds that make it so effective are:
A-pinene is a powerful monoterpene and has several associated class benefits. These include antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory effects, as well as light analgesic effects. The inclusion of a-pinene is one of the reasons that Frankincense can offer cleansing and protective benefits, as well as the mood support benefits that it is so well known for.
Limonene amplifies the effects of a-pinene, offering secondary anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits that can promote your body's ability to heal and fight off disease. Limonene is also supportive of your mind and mood, and is known to counteract the inflammatory effects of stress in the body. The benefits of this extend beyond mental, and can relieve physical symptoms of anxiety and stress.
B-myrcene has been tested and scientifically reviewed in use together with limonene, and is known to reduce the symptoms of physical and emotional manifestation of anxiety. When used regularly, it can also offer sedative effects based on its action on neurological pathways, which can help to calm racing thoughts and low-frequency moods.
Finally, Sabinene offers physical support for the body's management of inflammation, which has a direct impact on mood management and resiliency. It's also essential for general health and wellness, as heightened amounts of inflammation can cause serious disruption and perpetuation of symptoms.
We recommend that a high-quality frankincense for mind and mood should contain:
- 25 to 45 percent A-pinene
- 8 to 23 percent Limonene
- 7 to 11 percent B-myrcene
- 2 to 6 percent Sabinene
The composition of essential oils can vary depending on many factors (such as harvest time), and some oil can be adulterated with synthetic chemicals.
